College of Medicine Pipeline Programs

The College of Medicine Diversity Affairs offers programs and initiatives to support minority students interested in pursuing a career in medicine. 

The hard work and efforts of the COM Group on Diversity Affairs, Diversity Committee, Office of Admissions and the Office of Graduate Medical Education has led to an increase in underrepresented in medicine students, residents and faculty. Underrepresented in medicine individuals in the College of Medicine currently represent 20% of the student body.

Our different pipeline programs are as follows:

  • Students Mentors for Minorities in Medicine (SM3)
  • Summer Institute
  • Summer Medicine Academy
  • Post-Baccalaureate Reapplication Program (PREP)
  • Minorities in Healthcare Mentoring and Advising Through Collaborations in Healthcare (MATCH)

Please see each program's individual page for more information. 

Minority Association of Premedical Students Conference

Description:  Pre-medical students are invited to an informational session on what it takes to be accepted into medical school. Students are given the opportunity to meet some of the faculty, staff, students, and physicians they could possibly work alongside in a few years. Speakers will present information regarding admissions, diversity, and the current methods used in practicing medicine. There will be panels composed of minority students and physicians to answer questions and discuss medical school experiences. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a suture workshop and tour MUSC's Simulation Center. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided to all that register.
